Hi there,

Thanks for all the answers. Concerning Skype electron, Can I ask, how can we
quickly read chat messages, or at least focus to the list of chat messages
in a conversation window? Is there a workaround for that? Using NVDA?

Clarification: All Skype versions allow multiple simultaneous chats, but
only Skype Classic allows chats to appear in separate windows. In Skype
classic's default view and in all other Skype clients for Windows, you
switch among chats by choosing different conversations in the conversation
list. I was doing that in Skype Classic for years already and have not used
separate windows in a very long time, so admittedly I'm quite used to this.

It works and works well. You only chat with one person at once
anyway, and you do't want too many resources to be taken up, so take
it, or uninstall skype and never use it.

I use skype 8 every day for my jobs and don't mind that it is only 1
chat, it always has ben one chat and always will be one chat.

OK, but then how it can be considered OK, or even acceptable?
We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than
one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of
chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing

The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application
doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it,
and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a
half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need
to start using the worse solution right now.

The matter of fact is that there is no possibility of more than one
chat at the same time in Skype 8 therefore we cannot do anything!
I'm very sorry to let you know that I was forced to update Skype 8.25!

I understood that Skype 8 doesn't offer the possibility of opening
windows for separate chats. How can we solve this problem?
